PlastiDipped front and rear emblems yesterday. Pics up tonight. Back VW emblem needs a little more attention in one small spot but overall it looks great.

It was nice out yesterday so I gave it a good wash.
Also now that the detroits are clean they aren't that bad and I decided I'm going to hold off on wheels and get tail lights and other stuff.

Full of pics today on vacation. First pic is of when I hit 1200 miles a while ago in the cold weather and snapped a picture at a light. Others are of the LED interior lights, Lamin-X, Xenon Match fogs, and got rid of those God awful ugly red stripes. Sadly, exhaustexhaust stopped their sale on magnaflow catbacks so I guess I'll have to pay full price from ECS for one.

Been a while since this was updated... First thing's first my EJ cat back should be here soon! BIG thanks to Steve at PG Performance for dealing with the EJ exhaust group buy. Also I am planning on ordering Raceland Ultimo coils sometime soon. Anyone to be so kind and give me any info on if they're good? Snapped some pics of it the other day as well (please excuse the thin layer of dirt on it). NEEDS NEW WHEELS! I'm also going to finally register over on vortex now.

Lots of stuff happened yesterday!

Finally took some real pictures yesterday of my car and with the EJ cat back on it. I'm not going to post all 40 something pictures again so here is the link to the thread I made for them:
http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36662

I also got my best mpg yet yesterday at 33.6 mpg and I hit 1700 miles!

Thanks dude. Yep we gotta have those things too. I call it my G meter based on how sideways it gets while cornering haha. I go to HSHS maybe I'll see you around sometime.
